Biggest 64 Pitch Spur you can put on a TC3

What is the biggest Spur you can put on a TC3 without doing any mods to Chassis?

Okay, now that parking lot season is finally here I need to talk setups. I haven't raced TC much but have raced offroad for years. We run on a temporary track made up of concrete in roughly 20ft squares with small cracks between the squares. We do spray pop down on the track. I am running the races so I don't have alot of time to wrench on race day. I almost need to take the car to the track and do very little tuning on it. This is the setup I am running currently.

Front
5.5mm ride height
stock droop
40wt oil, red springs, inside mounting position
camber link is upper and inside
-1 deg camber 0 deg toe

rear
5.5mm
stock droop
40wt oil, silver springs, middle hole on tower
camber link is upper inside
-1 deg camber stock anti squat and toe in

I am running sorex 28s with jb foam firms (yok unbelted mediums also work well but I don't have any) running in mod class with a 15dbl ti based Wimpy motor. I was having problems with the car pushing last race so I went to middle hole on shock tower and that seemed to help but I still wasn't getting the rotation through the corners I was looking for. Its a bunch of money but I was considering the one way diff because I come from offroad racing where you are working with little to medium traction so I am more used to loose cars than hooked up cars. I ordered the 2deg caster blocks and the optional arm mounts to be prepared for anything you guys suggest. I am just looking for a little more rotation in the corners with a little more consistency. any thoughts? am I way off base? oh yeah, I am in ks so track temps haven't been that high yet.. maybe mid 60s to 70s.

Whew, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Eric

This is of the subject But.

I was wondering how to set the diffs? Should leave the front one tighter then the rear? Or should I tighting the rear and leave the front diff a little loose?

New to TC3.

mystererc:

I'll be making it down for a few races this year, (with my TC3 and NTC3 )

I'll email you my setup...there are 2 differences though:

1. I run an IRS chassis, shouldn't be that different.
2. I use the CRC clicker shocks...

Let me know how it works for you!!!

kansasracer, glad to hear it. There are a couple faster guys running nitro now too so you should have some competition in both classes. I will be looking forward to racing with you. someone from your area was in town monday and I happened to be at the hobby shop and gave him a flyer, but we only had a minute to talk so I didn't get a name. He runs a XXXs though.

yodace: You really want both diffs as close to the same as possible. This will leave the car very neutral. But, if you do want to experiment, a looser diff will provide more diff action, or a little more traction. Looser rear diff, more rear traction in the turns. Same for the front.

Downside, under big HP applications, you could have more slip than you want, causing a loss in acceleration.

Oh, ya, by the way. I'm getting married....

heh heh. Actually, she has NO problem with me racing. She understand the level I'm at with it and realizes it is a reality. Good thing.

She's a good woman. I'm a lucky guy.

Ok, back to the TC3. Who's at SoCal this weekend??
